Adamawa Queens will meet Confluence Queens in the opening game of the 2018/ 2019 NWPL Super Four Championship, which kicks off at the ‘Soccer Temple,’ Agege, Lagos today.

The match, which begins by 2.00 p.m., will be followed by the second game featuring defending champions, Bayelsa Queens against Rivers Angels, a game which has been tagged the ‘final before the final going by the high reputations of the teams’ players.

The final match will be played on Sunday by 4.00 p.m., with the third place coming up earlier at 2.00 p.m.

According to the NWFL, the champion of the end of season competition will earn N3 million; the first runner’s up will get N2 million, while the third-place winner will get N1 million.

Meanwhile, NWFL chairperson, Aisha Falode, has applauded Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State for ‘making it possible for the 2018/2019 Nigeria Women Premier League Super Four to hold in Lagos.’
 
She said: “The board of the Nigeria Women Football League wishes to sincerely thank the Lagos State governor for his magnanimity in hosting the NWPL Super 4, without much trouble. We are playing at the Agege Stadium, Lagos today because of the love and interest the governor has for women’s football development.

“The governor recognised the fact that Lagos has produced a lot of women’s soccer professional players who not only helped take the country’s women’s national teams to a great height at the African and world levels but also helped in the development of the game in Lagos.”
 
Falode also acknowledged the contributions of Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, to the development of women’s football in Nigeria since the state’s first involvement in the Super Four competition, which they hosted at the old Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City in 2017.
 
“We appreciate the Deputy Governor who is in charge of sports in the state for his innovations and development plans for sports in Edo state. He will be one of the special guests at the grand finale of this year’s Super 4 in Lagos on Sunday, November 3, 2019. He will be joined by the Minister for Sports, Sunday Dare and Minister for Women’s Affairs, Pauline Tallen, at the Agege Stadium, Lagos.”
